Engineering News interview WRP and Xlink

In May, Engineering News interviewed Ronnie McKenzie, MD of WRP, and Grant McGlashan of XLink about the machine-to-machine water monitoring solutions that the two companies are rolling out in partnership.

Automated alarm notifications through SMS or email alert the client to system defects, such as leaks or meter-reading errors, which can be then be tackled immediately.
